Telefunken TC 750
Dolby B NR HighCom Full Logic Direct Drive Metal Tape

The Telefunken TC 750 is a stereo cassette deck with Dolby B and High-Com noise reduction, it was introduced by Telefunken in 1979 and discontinued 2 years later in 1981.

The main features of the Telefunken TC 750 are: 2 heads, analog 3 digit tape counter and memory stop, manual tape type selection with support for normal, chrome, ferro-chrome and metal tapes (automatic for normal and chrome tapes), single capstan transport.

Typical front loading cassette deck with the cassette compartiment located on the center of the deck. Tape eject is operated mechanically and the cassette needs to be placed with the side to be played facing forward in the cassette well.

Level meters used on the TC 750 are analog needle VU reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the TC 750 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection. Cue and review can be used to easily and quickly locate the beginning of a passage.

The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the TC 750 by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. The High Com system (as used in the TC 750) works as a broadband 2:1:2 compander, achieving almost 15 dB of noise reduction for low and up to 20 dB for higher frequencies, while avoiding most of the acoustic problems observed with other high compression broadband companders. To further maintain recording accuracy, the TC 750 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the TC 750 can be swiched on to prevent the standard 19kHz FM pilot signal from interfering with the noise reduction system.

To make live recordings this deck has 2 microphone inputs to connect a microphone with a DIN connector. For undisturbed listening a DIN connector for a pair of stereo headphones is supplied. Connection to other audio components for plaback can be achieved by a RCA cable and recording from a source by a RCA cable.
